Hello Wilder friends, I have been wanting to ask this question for some time and thought now would be a good time since, it has never been this difficult to reestablish my wireless connection. Usually a reboot of my PC will establish a wireless connection...but not this evening. The hard wired PC was fine but my wireless family machine was totally off line unable to connect. I finally had to reboot the router by cutting power and restarting by reconnecting power to the router. It is a otherwise reliable router most of the time. My question is what causes this? Is it the ISP or the router just loses the signal? Again usually a PC reboot will do it this evening it took a router reboot. I can usually use the right clink and repair to get it done too. Not this time. This Netgear router is approx. 30 feet away but there is a inside wall between. All my stuff runs 24/7. Well I am up now in fact the balloon just came up and said my signal is excellent... go figure.
